Amid the sound and fury of all the allegations of foreign influence peddling rocking the Democratic Party and the Clinton White House, one of Washington’s biggest foreign money players has eluded almost any mention in the mainstream media. That could be because the Reverend Sun Myung Moon and his Unification Church own one of Washington, DC’s most influential, and right-wing newspapers — The Washington Times.

Investigative journalist Robert Parry has just completed an exhaustive five part series on the Rev. Moon and his political money machine in the United States.

Guest:
• Bob Parry, a longtime investigative reporter based in Washington DC. He has previously worked for The Associated Press, Newsweek, and PBS’s Frontline and presently publishes I.F. Magazine and the web news magazine The Consortium
